The downward trend since 2017 was halted in 2019, with the number of Portuguese entries to the US rising again (+5.7%), although the total number of foreign entries continues to decrease (-5.9%). Over the time series under review (2000-2019), the number of Portuguese inflows into the US had a minimum value in 2010 (755 entries) and a maximum value in 2001 (1,609 entries). In relative terms, Portuguese emigration to the US still represents a very small fraction of immigration in this country (0.1%).
